Drake began when musician Jason Drake started a solo career after his former band, Generic, had split up in 1996. Jason decided to take his folk rock/pop influences and blend them with his love for hip hop and ambient trip hop. This combination introduced a creative style of music that brought forth keyboard, vinyl loops, and samples into Jason's already existing arsenal of acoustic and electric guitars and Mom's old turntables. Jason Drake has been pleased to find that he has recently been picked by Tommy Hilfiger along with 26 other bands to compete for a "demo deal" on Quest Records. His bio and music will be posted on Tommy.com this coming March.
